The West Indies are now surpassing themselves. The best players are in excellent shape, and their captain Kraigg Brathwaite is ready to lead his team to another victory!

West Indies and Sri Lanka will play the third format in March. Prior to this, WI and SL played 3 matches each at ODI and Twenty20 International. Only once Sri Lanka managed to play successfully, all the other 5 matches were deserved by the won players of the West Indies.

WI’s total advantage should continue for test matches. This is a great reason for the West Indies to correct their statistics within this format. And the success of Sri Lanka is unlikely after this team was able to win in 12 matches of different tournaments only once.
